Little here to complain about - the Terrapin frames the Dark Stars really beautifully. The only bits I'll take issue w/ are these:
1. Casey Jones - Trey's "phil in red".....yeah, yeah, yeah....but it would just never occur to Jerry to do something like that. Just as it never seems awkward when Miles plays, say, "Someday My Prince Will Come" without a hint of self-consciousness, Trey could use a lesson in that kind of approach to the 4th wall.
2. DWD is better played by Phish. As good as this band is, their approach to Phish's material isn't as organic as the Dead stuff.
All that aside, let yourself drift out on this one - lovely jazz at the beginning w/ MFT and Up to You.
Subject: Absolutely beautiful - Best recording right here
If you think of PLF as a Grateful Dead cover band, then yes, I agree with you that about 90% of the time it is, and it's much better to just listen to actual Dead concerts from 1972 or 1977.
But this concert stands on its own two legs as a wonderful work of music and art. The different songs and jams meld into one complete and fully soul-satisfying river of song. This concert is a wonderful experience.
Find the best-sounding copy of this, to your own ears, and keep it close. Five stars.

Milestones was such a brilliant addition to the song lineup. This is one of the best shows I have heard Phil play anywhere. They just crush it here.... Listen to the horns in the end...
Bob sounds really wierd in the first part of China Cat and I like Phil singing Jer's lines and then the whole ensemble in harmony is hot.
Subject: The Essence of Be-bop
Subject: Great Shows, All Star Cast
Keyboard work on friend of the devil is incredible, other great songs from this night are:
its up to you, days between, and favorite things. I found this group of recordings when the Grateful Dead Hour played My Favorite Things from this set. I just had to go right out and find the rest of the show.
Featuring an all star cast of Phil, Trey Anastasio (Phish), Page McConnel (Phish), John Molo, and Steve Kimock.
These shows belong in your collection. There are lot's of other good '99 Phil and Friends shows.
Subject: Monster show!
Subject: fantastic phil and friends show
I stood in line at the local ticket outlet all night for these shows, third person up, and the pimply kid at the register messed up the computer. By the time he fixed it (three minutes?), they were all sold out. I missed something special, thank god I can relive it through this recording.
